Don’t hate a hata.

It’s not every day you see a university chancellor’s office get involved in a pissing match with a college football blogger.  In fact, I’m hardpressed to think of a time when any school released a statement tagging someone with a cow dung reference as a nickname.  (Not that Chip Brown is any paragon of accuracy.)

I’d end this with a bit of “stay classy, dudes” snark, but I think they’re way past that stage already.

A first in the annals of jurisprudence

Steve Sarkisian has sued Southern Cal for wrongful termination.  Not much of a surprise there, I suppose.

But contained in his complaint (see page 8) is one of the greatest things I’ve ever read.

A great moment in the history of American journalism.  Simply boobtastic.

Pity the poor journalist.

I could have taken the complaining at this symposium a lot more seriously if Michael Wilbon hadn’t played the “people sit in their mother’s basements and write this crap” card.

Damn, that shit was lame a decade ago.  Although I should probably give him credit for not bringing up shaving and showering.

“I want good things to happen to Mark Richt, but my greater priority is for good things to happen to Georgia. “

Some perspective on the current situation – okay, some lengthy perspective on the current situation – from Doug Gillett, who resurrects Hey Jenny Slater. for the occasion.

Hell hath no fury like a pundit scorned.

And for a guy who insisted Brice Ramsey was a mortal lock to start at quarterback this season, Dean Legge sounds like someone possessed with the fury of a thousand suns.  Makes you wonder if he lost a bet.

A sign the Apocalypse may be nigh.

Really, this kinda freaks me out.

I don’t always take requests. But when I do…

So there I was last night, minding my own business, scouring the Internets for reactions to the Lambert news, when this popped up on Twitter:

David, since you asked…  Cue the tuneage.

And away we go.

That’s the point when I jumped into the conversation.

And got this in response.

How much of Lambert’s statistical shortcomings in 2014 fall on him and how much on his surrounding cast of coaches and teammates is the big question – one that we’ll start getting a handle on this Saturday.
